Why vinyl records survive in the digital age
The entire experience of vinyl creates its appeal.
Vinyl records appeal to the sense of sight, sound, and touch, while digital/streaming-only appeal to one sense. You can feel a record, hold in in your hands. It must be handled carefully as the record is easily scratched or can warp in the sun. Vinyl has a richness, depth, and warmth that digital media lacks.

Record albums are analog, the closest thing we have to the soundwaves. These waves are drawn out of a flattened, spinning disk of vinyl by a diamond. The diamond is physically taking a ride on the record. The bumps in the grooves push the diamond up and down.
Ask a record-collecting audiophile why vinyl is back, and you may hear a reply about sound quality. But it is much deeper than that. The form of the medium becomes part of the message it would convey and influences how the message is viewed.
The process of putting on a record is like a ritual.
The record experience holds some possible lessons for user-interface designers.
